Did you recently receive a dental implant from our Lansing, IL dental office? Are you wondering about how to care for your new implant? Good news — cleaning and caring for your dental implant is just like caring for any of your other teeth!
When we talk about taking care of a dental implant, we are really referring to the only visible part of the implant: the crown. The porcelain crowns used in implants resemble the look and feel of our natural teeth, so it only makes sense that we would care for them in a similar manner.
Dental implants are strong and durable, and while they are not subject to decay like the enamel of our natural teeth, they can be damaged or broken. Artificial dental implant crowns should be treated with care.
Daily Hygiene Routine
Each day, brush and floss around your implant just as you would with your other teeth. Clean the area along the gum line by brushing thoroughly, preferably with a soft toothbrush. Use dental tape or a wide floss to gently remove any food or debris around the area, and finish with a mouthwash or antimicrobial mouth rinse. There are a wide variety of dental hygiene products such as toothbrushes and floss specifically designed for use with dental implants.
If you begin to experience problems or inflammation with your dental implant and you live in northwestern Indiana or the southern suburbs of Chicago, our skilled dentists can recommend specific treatments. Call our office today at (708) 895-0778 to learn more!
